TLC for winter feet

Three easy to follow tips to keep your feet happy during winter.

  1. Raise, point, and curl your toes for five seconds  on each foot. Repeat 10 times. Rotate your ankles to relax your feet. Cup your heel and rotate each ankle slowly five times to help loosen  ankle joints.
  2. Massage your feet; it releases tension, promotes circulation, and rejuvenates the skin after a long day of walking and standing. Add your favorite scented  lotion into the mix for a soothing, relaxing experience.
  3. Elevate your legs. If you’re prone to swollen ankles or calves and you sit a lot at work, elevate  your legs with a foot stool under your desk. At the end of the day, reduce swelling by lying down and lif ting your legs above your heart.
